Overview

Based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald story "Babylon Revisited," this epic romance is a captivating blend of Parisian expatriate high society and the struggles in post-WWII Europe. When war writer and veteran Charles Wills (Van Johnson) meets the lovely and restless Helen Ellswirth (Elizabeth Taylor) in Paris after the war, the two strangers instantly fall in love, basking in the glory of a free Paris. Helen and her father, James Ellswirth (Walter Pidgeon), are eccentric American expatriates living life in high style but always on the brink of going broke. Charles is captivated with the Ellswirthses' reckless and fun-loving lifestyle, staying out all night, gambling and living life in the glory of the Left Bank artistic society. Charles and Helen get married and have a family, but life becomes more difficult as they continue on with their free-spirited and reckless adventure. Elizabeth Taylor is glorious as the lovely young ingenue Helen, who loves Charles in spite of herself. Her stunning costumes are shot beautifully, contributing to the glorious style of this beautifully rendered epic.
